In the US try American Type Culture Collection, 12301 Parklawn Drive,
Rockville, Maryland, 20852 USA.  I also believe they are on-line but I
don't know their location (I ran across it once using Gopher).  I don't
know what their policy on getting pathogens though and I assume that you
will have to get special permits for sending something like that in
international mail.  I'll bet there is something similar to ATCC in Japan.
